Why Fear Success?

When Saul saw how successful (David) was, he was afraid of him.  1 Sam 18:15

A good indication of godlessness is the fear of someone else’s success.  In Saul’s case it is double blindness.  All of David’s accomplishments could have belonged to King Saul.  A hand clenched in pride is not open to received any honor.  Successful leadership makes room for others to succeed and allows the warmth and sunshine of individual accomplishment to heat and light the whole organization.images (5)
